Up to 417 paintings by children nationwide featuring a vivid and colourful world of childhood will be on display at an exhibition to be held in the capital city of Hanoi from May 28 to June 1.

The exhibited drawings are selected from more than 90,000 entries in a national contest organised by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the Ministry of Education and Training, the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union and the Ministry of Labour, War Invalids and Social Affairs.

Vi Kien Thanh, an official from the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, said at a press briefing in Hanoi on May 24 that the organising board will present awards to the 50 most outstanding paintings.

Along with the exhibition, a “Childhood World” fair, the 16th of its kind, will also be held, creating a healthy playing ground for children during the summer holiday.-VNA
